To Ama Commey My Princess
PUBLISHER’S NOTE Great Queens and Kings of Africa, in poetry, is adapted from its parent book 100 Great African Kings and Queens, by the same author. Originally written for the age group 4–11 years, it is expected that parents will recite these beautiful poems to their children and make it an educational experience, both for the child and for the parent. This is because these amazing historical poems will greatly appeal to adults as well. To answer tough questions that will inevitably arise from enquiring young minds, parents are strongly advised to arm themselves with the exciting narrative 100 Great African Kings and Queens – Volume One, or its other adaptation The Glory of African Kings and Queens – Volume One. May the fun and knowledge be with you!
